Our room was not cleaned. We left at 9:00 a.m. and removed the "Quiet Please-do not disturb" sign and did not return until 9:30 p.m. When we called the front desk, the response was that we had the do not disturb sign on our door and if we wanted towels we could come to the front desk and get them....

Great stay. Having a separate sitting room with a couch and an additional TV was very nice. The room was very pleasant--smelled nice and very clean. The breakfast was good and fresh. All toiletries furnished and a list of TV channels.

Clean hotel, large rooms, comfortable beds. Breakfast typical, adequate, nothing exceptional. The rooms were very quiet. It was sold out and we heard nothing even with a full house. I thought it was "pricey" for Lake Charles. We checked into our room about 7 PM went to room and could not unlock door..IT ACTED LIKE INSIDE SECURITY LOCK WAS ON.... More

Great stay each time. The staff is friendly and caring. The rooms are always clean and neat. The decor is very up to date and not old and stale. The Pool is always clean. The breakfast is always a variety and DELICIOUS!

There was a dirty towel wedged in the chair in room. There was a big area of something unidentified, looked crumbly, under the corner of the bed so it hadn't been vacuumed very good. Body hair on bathroom floor.

Big pillows adore the beds in this hotel with comfortable beds. They have a nice gym and it is in a nice neighborhood with a Family Dollar, Dollar General, Taco Bell and other stores in walking distance. Room were very clean. Only reason I gave it a 4 is that the staff was nice but there was not a Home... More

We stayed here June 30 and had a wonderful stay there. The rooms are remodeled, clean, and the staff are awesome. We stayed in a king room which need up being a suite, and felt right at home there. We will be back next time we are in Lake Charles, La.

This is the first lodging establishment I have stayed at in traveling over 50 years on business, work, and pleasure, that the staff proactively presented a most enjoyable experience while staying there. I have used many different lodging chains and independent motels and never experience such friendly and helpful staff including assistance from the manager. I will be reserving my... More

We were greeted with a smile and promptly given our room keys. Room was a standard king, mobility accessible, with a great bath area and good towels.( I hate rough towels or a lack of them) and we had plenty of them. Breakfast was kind of standard fair but ok so we could get on the road with a long... More
